We have construction going in on our street which has been starting at 5:30am every morning.
This morning after being woken up by the noise, I decided to go ahead and get up and make something for breakfast for Daniel and Elizabeth. I remembered seeing a delicious-looking recipe a day or two ago for Snickerdoodle Muffins. How good does that sound? Now, typically, I'm not a big breakfast person.... I'm more of a quick smoothie or bowl of oatmeal kind of gal, but I thought my husband and daughter would appreciate something that took a little more time. Especially since it is summer and my husband, who is a teacher, is home.
I saw this recipe on Oopsey Daisy. Be sure to head over to her blog for LOTS of great ideas!
3/4 t baking soda
3/4 t cream of tartar
1/4 t salt
1/2 c butter, melted
1 c sugar
1 c milk
1 t vanilla
1 cup sugar
2 T cinnamon
Preheat oven to 375. Butter a 12 cup muffin tin or use cupcake papers.
Mix dry ingredients, except sugar, together in a bowl. In another bowl, combine butter, sugar, eggs, milk and vanilla. Stir until combined. Now add dry ingredients and mix lightly with a fork.
Fill muffin cups with batter. Top each with sugar and cinnamon mixture. Bake 15-20 minutes (Mine were ready in 15 minutes) or until a toothpick comes out clean.
These were so delicious! The only thing I would change is to put a pat of butter on top of the sugar and cinnamon mixture before cooking to give it some moisture.
